The networking issues affecting multiple systems in the Cheek Hall data center, including wireless services throughout the MSU System, have been circumvented. All systems and services should be working without issues. If anyone is still experiencing network outages, unreliable connectivity, or other intermittent issues, please report them immediately to Networking@missouristate.edu.
The issue was traced back to an interface card that has likely failed. We will continue to work with our manufacturer for further diagnostics and ultimate replacement as appropriate. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our goal is to never experience such an outage. Had the card failed completely, redundant circuits would have allowed all services to continue uninterrupted. Since the card appeared to work intermittently, convergence issues were created that caused the unreliable service.
